2021 Fantasy Outlook
One of the more unique players in the class, Wagner's length and intangibles are the primary traits that made him a top-10 pick. Wagner averaged a well-rounded 12.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 block as a sophomore at Michigan last season. He's far from a traditional playmaker, but Wagner's passing is well-above-average for his age and size. He also profiles as a potentially elite defender capable of shadowing opposing big men and sticking with guards at the rim. Wagner will have more competition for playing time than fellow-rookie Jalen Suggs - including from his older brother, Moritz - but if the minutes are there, he could be one of the most well-rounded rookies in the class. Still, Wagner is probably a year away from warranting draft consideration in standard formats. Read Past Outlooks

Dishes 10 assists in loss
FOrlando Magic
January 12, 2022
Wagner logged 14 points (6-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, 10 assists and one steal over 32 minutes during Wednesday's 112-106 loss to the Wizards.
ANALYSIS
Wagner's previous season high for assists was six, but he crushed that total Wednesday to record the second double-double of his rookie season. He'll attempt to continue his strong debut campaign during the back-to-back set versus Charlotte and Dallas on Friday and Saturday, respectively.
